Forum: sflan Subject: SFlan software 1.1

I am hoping a this rev to the software would make it so that a bunch of sflan node owners would use sflan every day (right now I dont because it does not integrate into my home network).

Based on a conversations with Jurgen Botz and Clif, the following changes in SFlan software configuration would allow:

* get the higher speed sflan when it is working

* fall back transparently to our dsl lines

* can get to our home printers and other home functions

Big change: run an ethernet from the dsl modem to the SFlan box as well as the ethernet that goes from the SFlan box to the inside home system.

note: depending on how we do tunneling, the IN port on the SFlan box might have to get a real IP address (route-able). This will certainly work in the following configuration:




|
| omni antenna
---------------
| SFLAN |
|-|-|---| yagi | ssid: sflanX
| in out |
----------------
| |
dsl ---------------------/ -----------
| wireless|
|linksys |---- wireless to laptop etc
| hm |
| router |--- hm pc
|---------|---- printer






tunnel on IN port of the SFlan box back to the Internet Archive
optional tunnel on yagi port of the SFlan box back to the Internet Archive
Open question: which tunnel implementation: ssl based? ip-over-ip? userspace vpn?
This is to help with getting high speed when available, fallback onto dsl if sflan goes away, and allowing people to use their home printers and be protected by their normal firewalls.


optional NAT on out would help those that dont have a home firewall box.

Power over Ethernet on OUT port (currently what happens)
